I have a friend that invited me to Zanzibar in Santa Monica where Anthony spins every Friday. It didn’t take me but about 10minutes to know he was DOPE. I also caught his show on KCRW. There’s no denying his music taste.
Last September my friend especially wanted to go check him out because 2 of our friends, one of whom is a DJ, had nothing but good things to say about his talent. The DJ homegirl said:
“He changed the way I listened to music.”
It was easy enough to see why she said that.
This was a great interview. The more he talked the more I wanted to keep talking to him.
-How he fell in love with music.
-Paul Robeson, Michel Gondry, Michael Jackson, & Hulk Hogan.
-How he started making beats.
-The DJ scene in LA & his job as a DJ.
-Projects he’s completed & working on.
-Where you can find him.
-Words of advice.

Late Monday nights 12-3am on KCRW!
